I recall other boards where fans seem to think that it is the right of their metro area to have all "big 3" or "big 4" sports if they have 1. This Seattle article points out what I suspect is going to be the cause of several "big 4" markets eventually becoming 2-or-3-sport towns, professionally speaking.

For that matter, beware the merger society!

Thanks for the article, Pounder. I think that the other side of the coin is underdeveloped markets. Territorial rules exclude more franchises from developing in mega-metropolises. New York is the prime example of a metropolitan area that could easily support more franchises but existing teams hold exclusive rights. Affluent Northern New Jersey just cries out for its own baseball team, for example.

THIS will show up on fieldofschemes.com!

Yet another reason why pro sports teams should be required to own their own venues. So much business is done these days through constant movement of money that the concept of building a quality product and pricing accordingly seems secondary, or worse. And then all the money movement-results in interest rates, dependency on certain tax conditions, and ultimately changes the perspective on qualifying return on investment.

Aaaaaaarrrrrrrggggghhhhh! >:(

breathing now.... just breathing...

Yet another reason why college ball is so appealing - The general absence of such financial absurdities and the more equal treatment of fans.
